Dream Team coach, Samson Siasia looked quite unruffled after the semi final game against Germany, insisting that his wards did their best to get that far.
Siasia stated that given the way they played against Germany, Nigeria had no business reaching the final.
Hear him: “Given our performance against Germany, we don’t deserve to play in the final. The Germans played better and deserved their victory.”
Siasia pointed out that he was disappointed that the strikers failed to take the chances that came their way. He particularly berated Roma forward, Sadiq Umar for failing to rise to the occasion.
“Am I the one going to score for them? I m disappointed with the way we played.
But on the whole there is nothing to worry about because given the challenges we faced, nobody expected us to get this far.”
Captain of the side, Mikel Obi on his part said they won’t allow the loss to weigh them down as they go for the third place (bronze medal) match against Honduras.
“We are professional players and hopefully we can win a medal.”
The Dream Team will tomorrow face Honduras in the bronze medal match in Belo Horizonte. Honduras bowed 0-6 to Brazil in the first semi final.
